The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund
Jennifer is a proud member of The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund’s Board of Directors. She became involved with “Morgan’s Fund” after meeting President/Co-founder Stephanie Vaughan at a speaking event in 2013.
The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund is a nonprofit dedicated to establishing a mechanism for disseminating credible and timely information about Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) to parents whose infants are most at risk for developing NEC; raising the level of public awareness about NEC and the potentially devastating effects it can have on infants and their families; and advancing research to prevent, diagnose, treat, and ultimately, cure NEC.
Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) is a rare, inflammatory disease that leads to necrosis (death) of the intestine. It is predominately due to prematurity and it is the second leading cause of death in premature infants.
